We stayed here actually a couple of years ago and should have written the review then. If you like to fish, watch others who do, listen to the water rush by, or just enjoy the quiet of the trees and the forest, then this is your place. Sooo much nicer than the National Park at Yosemite, or June Lake area. Commutable (when Tioga Pass is open) to the park and all the 5 star attractions, but a quiet secluded place at the end of the day away from the crowds. Nicest camp hosts you would want to meet - Judy and Gary. First day we were there, Gary asked if we liked trout and did we fish. Our answer was yes, we like trout, but no we really don't carry gear to fish. About an hour later he showed up with 3 beauties still flopping in the basket. I had NO IDEA how to clean, much less kill a live trout! Most of our camping neighbors were avid fishermen, so we offered the pick of the litter to a camper next to us if he would clean them. That night we enjoyed the best fresh fish ever. Worth a stop even if you don't fish. Several sites right on the water.
